She began her professional career designing evening wear and has since caught the attention of countless celebrities in Hollywood and other women from all over the United States. The ever-growing Lizz Russell Collection has expanded from Evening Wear to include her exclusive Rose Handbags, Royal Tees and Jewelry collections, all custom made. Each Rose Handbag is handmade and adorned with beautiful silk and satin flowers with exceptional attention-to-detail.
